I’m moving to New York. This is no surprise to many of you. I joke that I have been half-living there for about five years from the sheer quantity of time I have been spending there for both work and pleasure. In 2008, I spent over 200 days camped out there! Every time I left, it would get harder and harder. I’ve decided to stop fighting that feeling. It’s obviously where I want to be. So I am relocating myself at the beginning of 2012 to Brooklyn.
Now that I am home from my world travels, I am beginning my job search actively. I look forward to finding a small creatively-focused agency with a great mix of clients, or a great brand, preferably including the entertainment vertical, which I miss working with very much.
New York is my favorite city and I look forward to living there full-time, with its incredible energy, diversity, creativity and business. I can’t wait to be closer to friends I don’t see often enough. I will have to make it a mission to find proper Mexican food in the city! I have yet to unearth any. I’m anxious to get started on a new project and am excited at the prospects I have already come across.
I adore Atlanta and the South, but I know I can always come back. Drive A Faster Car will remain focused on Atlanta, Decatur and Athens. New York doesn’t need it. DaFC turned ten years old this December 2. It’s a little hard to believe. I feel like I have a child. I have blogged for ten years. This mark feels like as a good time as any to proceed with the changes in store.
I believe that covers most of the questions that have come my way. If you have others, feel free to reach out to me. I’m saying my “see you soon’s” on January 7 in Atlanta, if you’d like to come out. I’m planning to be in New York as of January 9.
